If You Could Read My Mind



If you could read my mind, love
What a tale my thoughts could tell
Just like an old-time movie
'Bout a ghost from a wishin' well
In a castle dark or a fortress strong
With chains upon my feet
You know that ghost is me
And I will never be set free 
As long as I'm a ghost that you can't see 



If I could read your mind, love
What a tale your thoughts could tell
Just like a paperback novel
The kind the drugstores sell
When you reach the part where the heartaches come
The hero would be me
But heroes often fail
And you won't read that book again 
Because the ending's just too hard to take 



I'd walk away like a movie star
Who gets burned in a three-way script
Enter number two
A movie queen to play the scene 
Of bringing all the good things out in me
But for now love, let's be real
I never thought I could act this way 
And I've got to say that I just don't get it
I don't know where we went wrong
But the feeling's gone and I just can't get it back 



If you could read my mind, love
What a tale my thoughts could tell
Just like an old-time movie
'Bout a ghost from a wishin' well
In a castle dark or a fortress strong
With chains upon my feet
But stories always end
And if you read between the lines 
You'll know that I'm just tryin' to understand
The feelings that you lack
I never thought I could feel this way 
And I've got to say that I just don't get it
I don't know where we went wrong 
But the feeling's gone and I just can't get it back.
